Types of Dental Emergencies and Immediate Actions

Toothaches: For a toothache, take painkillers like paracetamol or ibuprofen and seek dental care promptly. Severe pain might indicate a dental abscess, needing urgent treatment.

Lost Fillings: If you lose a filling, use temporary filling material from the pharmacy or dental wax to cover sharp edges until you can visit Perry Vale Dental. If in pain, contact the dentist immediately.

Soft Tissue Injuries: For injuries to the tongue, cheeks, or lips, clean the wound and seek dental or emergency medical care. Apply pressure with gauze if there’s persistent bleeding.

Facial Swelling: Swelling around the jawline or cheeks necessitates immediate medical attention. This could be due to a dental abscess, presenting with symptoms like tooth and facial pain, pus, bad taste or smell, fever, difficulty opening your mouth, or sensitivity to heat.

Managing Dental Pain

While waiting for your dental appointment, manage your pain by:

  • Applying a cold compress to the cheek near the problem area.
  • Taking over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen or paracetamol.
  • Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water.
  • Contact Perry Vale Dental promptly for any dental emergency to ensure proper care and treatment.
